  1. I don't really understand all the technical stuff going behind this, but isn't it good for consoles ? I mean, unless they release a PS5 +, the PS5 will be stuck on its hardware for the complete longevity of the console. At first, because of the dedicated hardware and all the stuff you guys are talking about, yeah a PS5 might run better than a PC (of the same price or even high end). But to compensate its lack of optimization, the PC will still have more and more raw power one year after another. I guess this is why you can still see very nice games running on a PS4, and those games are even nicer on PC imo, if you take RDR2 for instance.
  2. I would recommend it to someone who does not mind updating his phone by himself, because depending on your version, the latest update dispatch is not homogeneous. That being said, I got my G6 for more than 2 years now, with the same battery, and I would never change it for any mid tier. The screen is good, the cameras are good (you can also download some GCAM apk that some nice dudes released especially for the G6), the audio is simply fantastic if you are into it, and performance wise, for my use it's perfectly fine (I don't really use my phone to game). Some users have reported issues like poor battery life or moisture alert in the charging port, and I don't know if it is a niche issue or not. I live in Rotterdam, the past autumn and current winter are very wet, I bike and never had any issue with the moisture alert. Boot loop is gone since V20, it was a major issue with the V10 ( and I had it ). In the end I think if you scratch a bit you will always find people with issues with their phones.
  3. I got a G6 for more than 2 years, and to be honest, I don't see myself replacing it ... yet. I mean, ok, update wise, LG fucked up big time because most users had to manually do the update and flash the roms, that is a fair point. On the other hand, the G6 is bringing a lot of interesting and useful features while remaining notch free with a decent body ratio. If I had a samsung S8/S9, I would have had the same opinion though.
  4. Personally, I've never wanted to use one of these, but all my friends and family are using them. If anyone knows a replacement without loosing all your contacts, I'm all ears.
  5. It's just a classic thermal runaway from a lithium battery. Maybe the battery was not manufactured well, or the user was a bit hard on fast recharge (if this phone has it, I don't know), but this is not something unusual. Apple can do everything to monitor the battery behavior and regulate it, lithium batteries are simple ticking bombs. I work in the marine industry, all the battery storage are considered as Hazardous areas, and the bulkheads around them are heavily reinforced. It's not for nothing, we consider them as bombs. Also, removing the charger before the explosion is not a clue. Thermal runaway is a process that once launched, is very hard to impossible to stop.
  6. Can be handy for some application, but for the current smartphone user, what's the big deal ?
  7. If it pushes the industry to stop with notches, be my guest.
  8. The non-return point has been crossed in 2015, confirmed by both the GIEC, and a consortium of scientists which wrote a report called the State of Climate. Each GIEC report shows that instead of reducing our CO2 emissions they grow. On this point we are fucked. My point was (and I think we talk about the same thing) that renewable energies are, by their own nature, not "drivable"as a traditional power plant is, whether it is powered by coal or nuclear. You always have a ratio between the calculated/average load, and the anticipated peak loads of a country electrical consumption, to you avoid load shedding and black outs. This ratio is considerably superior with renewable energies because a windmill or a solar panel will always have a bad yearly efficiency, simply because they are intermittent source of power supply. Consequently, battery storage facilities need to be built, and their costs are far more superior than building nuclear plants for the same amount of power. That being said, we are talking about this with the idea that we will keep our way of living. I will defend tooth and nail renewable energy if we leave our financial system based on hyper consumption. But if we keep our way of life, then renewable energies are not an option.
  9. As always, the debate on nuclear power is driven by emotions while being a very technical subject. I saw a lot of mentions about nuclear waste. Which one ? So there are maybe several types of waste ? Maybe some of them are already recycled ? What is a Becquerel or a Sieverts ? Why Chernobyl incident can not happen again ? Do you realize that if we do stop everything we are doing, every production facility, the CO2 concentration will need at least 10 000 years to reach the level as before the industrial era ? That it also means we can only "damage control" the effect of global warming and we crossed the limit point years ago ? Do you also think that with renewable energies, if you country has a need of, let's say 1TWh, you will have 1TWh of renewable energy plants ? Isn't there some kind of ratio here ? Don't you need also storage facilities in case wind/sun are absent ?
  10. The guy literally never believed in the game success nor the studio itself and now he's trying to get some money back ? It's just a douche move imo.
  11. Ahem, if you pay Distrokid for 20e/year, they upload your music on all platforms without taking any cut on your royalties. It was almost free already.
  12. I think it goes beyond a rack full of blue rays. I don't know many people who likes to watch several the same movies nowadays. Attention span has became so low that even a movie like Blade Runner 2049 has been a commercial disaster because of its length (though it was not the case for Interstellar...) Even if a movie length is not the problem, still, movies and music are like a nuggets box to many: it is literally consumption, you listen/watch one time, and then you move forward.
  13. I think some people in this topic really need to slow their pace and chill a bit. This law postulate was not bad at all: one of the aim is to ensure that news papers from different EU countries get some money from articles they posted on their respective websites, which then might be then linked and distributed across the entire internet by different users/readers. Let's face it, how many people actually read the article once they've seen the head line ? If you don't go on the website then there is no profit. Paywall do not really works since one subscriber can copy paste the entire article so everybody can read it. Now, the final result ? As always, it's like the entire laws have been pre-written by lobbies. But it's not like it is something that only happens in the EU (end of Net Neutrality in the US, rings a bell ?). What can we do as citizens ? The same as US citizens could have done to fight internet providers companies: nothing. The complete cynicism and paradox is that we (at least in France) were told that this law is supposed to fight GAFA's dominance (Google, Amazon, Facebook ...), but guess what ? People are massively using Google news, and newspapers make a shit load of profit to be visible on it. So imo, the only way to frighten the lobbies in EU is that Google completely shuts down its News in the EU. I have no proofs, but my guess is that the revenues coming from the ads on newspapers websites will drastically decrease, and they will have to step back.
